Tile leveling system and spacers for 1/8" grout line -where can I buy this in GTA?

Ha!
I went to Home Depot and Lowes and they do not have the 1/8" model that you tighten with wedges and plyers.
I am looking for a couple of sources to buy these .

I could order from Amazon but it seems to be a hit and miss- there are scammers there that show plyers wedges and spacers in the prod description but if you check the reviews many don't receive all these. Just the spacers. I do not have time from games like this and I hate to see that Amazon tolerates this, I guess many of the ppl who ordered complained and requested a refund)

Also if you know of places where I can find more models of trims (edges, transitions or reducers) for tiles I would really appreciate the info...

Home Depot carries 1/8 tile levelling system, they also carry 1/16. Check online for a store near you that carries 1/8.

I wouldn't buy no name from Amazon, if buying online get a decent brand name. When a level clip doesn't snap off clean during removal you must dig that plastic out from between tiles with an exacto blade before grouting-not fun.

I must be blind, I was in store yesterday but I could not see those, they are red so it is hard to miss them.
Their website tells you which island which bay but in this case there is no info

Ask the store?

Edit: looks like you can just order it online with free shipping to the store, so might as well do that. Free return if they aren't right....

Both 1/8 and 1/16 are available at HD. They are sometimes just outside the tile aisles. Thats why it does not say which aisle and which bin on the website.

Then how do you find them if they are not where they are supposed to be

Look around or ask staff. As I said, it is usually kept just outside the tile aisle. Right around where you would enter that aisle.

How do folks overcome the tile thickness issue for these levellers. If the tile thickness is too small u ll end up pushing the wedges right through the plastic pieces.

You step up to the big boy clip system from Perfect Level Master. The clips come in different heights for different ranges of tile thickness. I order the small clips for thinner backsplash/wall tiles and the standard height for the the thicker floor tiles.
